The Greening of Everyday Life

New Book Edited by John M. Meyer and Jens Kersten


With contributions from leading international and emerging scholars, The Greening of Everyday Life critically explores specific strategies and actions taken to generate homes, communities, and livelihoods that might be scaled-up to promote more sustainable societies. The chapters utilize conceptual frameworks rooted in environmental justice, new materialism, and social practice theory and apply it to everyday issues such as urban biodiversity, infrastructure for storm water run-off, green home remodelling, household toxicity, community gardens and farmers markets, bicycling and automobility, alternative technologies, and more.

This volume arose out of the papers and discussions from a workshop held at the RCC in 2014. It is edited by Society of Fellows member John M. Meyer and former Carson Professor and affiliated LMU professor Jens Kersten.
